Be a Hero in the Life of a Child

Bdai, Vietnamese mother of two, bends into a stream to fill a water bottle for her children. She lives in a rural highland community suffering the effects of drought. Her crops failed, food is scarce and expensive, and she cannot afford basics like medicine for her children. Save the Children has helped families like hers, by providing rice to feed the family for a month, and trucking in water to the hardest-hit communities. Photo credit: Jonathan Hyams/Save the Children, August 2016. Twelve-year-old Muneeba (rear) and nine-year-old Najma 9 (front) hold books on their way home from the library. Save the Children has provided a library-in-a-box for their village in Pakistan. Muneeba, started school late, so she was paired up with a reading buddy, Najma who Najma helps her to read as a part of Save the Children's Literacy Boost initiative.

He was recently treated for malaria by a Save the Children medical team. He and his brother are living with an aunt in a small mud house after having to flee violence in their area. Struggling to make ends meet, the family received basic provisions and some financial assistance from Save the Children, and the children are being monitored for malnutrition.

It was destroyed by typhoon Haiyan, which struck the Philippines in 2013. Many coastal villages were devastated by the storm, and debris blocking roads made access impossible.

Education is the road that children follow to reach their full potential in life, yet many children in need around the world do not get a quality education where they can learn and develop. Save the Children supports education programs for children in the classroom and at home. LEARN MORE
